Senator Abaribe To Forfeit 100 Million Over Nnamdi Kanu

The Federal High Court, Abuja has varied the bail conditions upon which the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) was granted bail. Senator Abaribe and the other sureties for Nnamdi Kanu are expected to pay the sum 100 million naira to the court’s account.

This variation was made by Justice Binta Nyako for the ruling she gave in April 2017.
In the ruling Justice Nyako said that the three sureties including Sen. Eyinnaya Abaribe were compelled to within two months, pay N100 million each for their inability to produce the missing IPOB leader.

Senator Abaribe and the other sureties were made to sign a bond of 100 million naira which included landed assets and documents that were left with the court.

With this variation, they are now required to deposit cash of N100 million into the court’s bank account.
“The order directing the sureties to pay the money is an order of interim forfeiture’’, she said.

The sureties had argued that Kanu’s disappearance was not unconnected with the invasion of his home by the military and not orchestrated by them. (Sun News)

The military had in a special operation clashed with IPOB members in Afara-Ukwu, Umuahia, in Abia State, on Sept. 14 2017, leading to Kanu’s escape from the country. (Sun News)
